2023-2024 Program Chair: Brooke Gialopsos — scholarships {at}

2024 scholarship information will be available soon.

Each year, Lake Washington PTSA Council awards a variety of scholarships to graduating seniors and to LWSD certificated staff. Funding for these scholarships has traditionally been provided by the generosity of all PTSAs in the district, the continued support and success of Council’s scholarship basket auction, and donations from the greater community. Student scholarships—recognizing achievement, community service and more—assist recipients in their post-secondary education. Scholarships for certificated LWSD staff provide assistance with continuing education at an institute of higher learning or through LWSD Professional Development.

In 2023, Council awarded 15 student scholarships for $1,250 each, in the following categories:

  • 8 Merit scholarships
  • 1 LWEA/Teeley scholarship (funded by the LWEA)
  • 2 Perseverance scholarships
  • 1 Turnaround scholarship
  • 1 Two-year, technical or vocational scholarship
  • 2 At-large scholarships

Descriptions of all scholarship categories can be found in the application forms (see below). Also awarded in 2023 were two staff scholarships for $500 each.
